A little humor to address a serious ADULT issue.
I was in the office a few years ago and I kept noticing a slight, subtle unpleasant odor as someone walked by.
I remembered that this particular person told me that they took a shower at night so they could sleep longer…soooo, they just get out of the bed, get dressed and leave.
An adult, or GROWN person just can’t do that!
We live a whole life in our sleep. Everything we do during the day, we do at night…
And, even if you sleep through the entire night, the first thing most people have to do is ‘avail themselves to the facilities’…(use the bathroom).
One of the greatest reminders that our flesh is temporary is the fact that as soon as we bathe, night or day, we begin becoming ‘unclean’. We begin ‘decay’ in a sense so that no matter how much soap, deodorant, perfume, or cologne we put on…it will eventually wear away. In fact, if we go too long without bathing, our skin, the largest organ of the body, will become unhealthy.
SMELLING GOOD TAKES WORK BECAUSE SMELLING GOOD IS NOT NATURAL!
We have a responsibility to maintain physical and spiritual cleanliness. Not just for us… but for those around us.
Isaiah 1:16a (NKJV)
16 “Wash(A) yourselves, make yourselves clean…”
So, the moral of this story is that grown people need some soap and water every morning.
Once you’re older than 7 years old, you need a shower, or bath, or at least an old fashioned ‘wash-up’ EVERY DAY…even if you work from home.
You stinker, you! That’s a really good message. 😉
